Documentary Preview: “Dark Girls”
As sad as it is to say, we all know the constant battle the Black community faces in terms of skin color. We have a “color concept” that dark skin is unwanted and undesirable and that light skin is beautiful and superior. This unspoken division is documented in “Dark Girls” as it gets the first hand inner thoughts from women who have darker skin.
Watching this preview really made me think and want to just slap myself. One girl says,
“Oh well she’s pretty for a dark skinned girl”
In all honesty I’ve said this before and now I’m not so proud of it. Get informed, remove bias to the side and ask yourself
Can we ever truly as a people overcome the mentality of light skin vs. dark skin??
